This is off of the beaten path but well worth locating and experiencing. It is an "outdoor museum" of the life and times of the early sugar plantation workers.
Loved it! Knowledgable, friendly, engaging guide. Small tour groups taken on fascinating journey into the past where we saw the houses where sugar plantation workers lived in the 19th and early 20th centuries and many artifacts of their cultures. Many of the Asian ethnic groups represented as well as Portuguese. I now have a much better understanding of the multicultural... 更多
What a wonderful wonderful experience! Brenda our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of the plantation and the many waves of laborers brought in to work the fields. We loved all the history.! Thank you Brenda and Hawaiian Plantation Village.
This attraction is an area that recreates the life of early immigrants who came to work in the sugar cane fields. Each building represents the home one of the groups that came over including Korean, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Okinawan, Puerto Rican, and Filipino. Inside the buildings are some antiques that were used in that time as well as traditional clothing... 更多

Easy to find - west of Honolulu and well worth the visit. We were very lucky to go on a Monday morning and to be there at 10:00 for a tour. That is the tour that Etsy does once a week. She is the sweetest 80+ year-old lady that actually grew up living in the village when it was active... 更多
This out of the way attraction can be easily reached. Nestled in a valley (I think north of Pearl Harbour) volunteer docents who love the Hawaiian way of life guide you through the history of a sugar plantation and the various ethnic groups who formed the work force. Why they came, what they found as their way of life, and... 更多
